The Best Shoes to Wear With Skinny Jeans This Summer

When she’s not working with big names like Lupita Nyong’o, Jennifer Hudson, and Hilary Swank, celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger also divulges her fashion expertise in our Ask a Stylist column. From the best places to source vintage to the secret to finding your most flattering jeans, come back each week for a professional’s perspective.

With warm weather right around the corner, I’m already planning several summer outfits for my clients. A number of looks revolve around denim and fresh ways to style jeans this season. And when it comes to footwear, the number one shoe style I’m suggesting to all my clients and friends is a great pair of slides. Whether flats or a heel iteration, this style is easy and perfect for day-to-night dressing (especially if you opt for something with a block heel). Basically, if you weren’t sure how to wear slides before this, your summer outfits will be proving you learned a lot from this quick tip.
